Would You Like Some Tortellini With Your Cheese?

Total Time

I love baked pastas and lasagna-type dishes, so I figured I'd make up my own this last winter with what was in the house. Well, before I knew it, I had more cheese than anything else! So...If you're a cheese lover, this dish is for you! :) It would be easy to "customize" though, which is what I do with many recipes. It would probably be good by cutting some cheese and adding varied veggies (some suggestions: mushrooms, spinach, squash, eggplant, and so on). Have fun, be creative, and enjoy!

  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions, and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, gently combine all ingredients from the diced tomatoes through the salt.
  3. Gently mix the tortellini into the sauce mixture.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. Grease an 8x8-inch square baking dish, and put half of the tortellini mixture on the bottom of the dish.
  6. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese, and put the rest of the tortellini mixture on top.
  7. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top, and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top of that.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is golden and melted.

What a fantastic quick dinner! This recipe easily doubled for us tonight. Tomato/Chicken hating hubby, 3 1/2 yr old, and 17 month old all cleared their plates! It was great! Recipe was very easy to follow and directions were clear. The only thing I didn't double was the thyme and the can of chicken. Thanks for another wonderful meal to add to my week night rotation!
